The fourth NSF AMPS PI’s workshop will be held in a hybrid in-person/virtual mode on May 26, 2022 at George Mason University (Room 1201 in Merten Hall, next to the Rappahannock Parking Deck). It is expected that each AMPS team will make a presentation/poster on their current progress of the project and the future research directions. To foster synergism between the different projects, we ask that the presentations be accessible to members of other AMPS teams. PIs are encouraged to bring their graduate students and postdocs affiliated with their AMPS projects. Limited travel support is available for students and postdocs affiliated with AMPS projects, particularly for underrepresented groups in STEM. Participation is by invitation only.

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) recently formed a partnership with the Office of Electricity (OE) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support fundamental mathematical and statistical research that aim to develop novel methodologies and algorithms for improvement of the security, reliability, and efficiency of the modern power systems. The program, named the Algorithms for Modern Power Systems (AMPS), intends to catalyze a broad range of interdisciplinary research initiatives at the forefront of power system engineering, mathematics, and statistics.

The primary objective of the upcoming NSF AMPS PI’s workshop is to bring together principal investigators involved in the AMPS program and stakeholders from DOE and other government agencies, to report on the progress of the research projects, and to facilitate creation, transfer and application of knowledge on modern power grids. Deadline for Registration is May 13, 2022.
